Altenew | Thinking of You With Lotus Set

Altenew Lotus and To The Moon Stamp Sets. Card by @craftwalks #card #cardmaking #altenew #moon #lotus #lotuscard #handmadecard

Hi, friends!

Today I want to share the recent card I made for Altenew with a mystical or spiritual, if you will, feeling. I made it using a beautiful lotus flower from the Lotus Stamp Set and an incredible moon from To The Moon Stamp Set. I have had this idea in my mind for quite a while, after seeing a similar picture on some poster.

I started by stamping the moon and lotus using the Starlight and Tide Blue Crisp Dye Inks onto a Solar White Cardstock. Both these stamps have a bottom solid stamp, but I skipped it as wanted them to be lighter. Next, I die-cut the moon using a circle die and hand cut the lotus image.

I cut a panel of 4″ x 5.25″ out of Solar White Cardstock. After that, I created masks out of a masking paper for both the moon and lotus and adhered them onto the panel. I then blended the Tide Blue Dye Ink onto the bottom part of the panel.

Next, I masked the bottom part with a painters tape and blended the Starlight Dye Ink onto the top part. And then I removed the masks and added some splatters of the Pure White Ink Spray.

Next, the panel was foam mounted onto a white card base and the moon and lotus were popped up onto it right above the corresponding masked area.

I did this trick with masking the panel before ink blending to add more air and lightness to the card, which, by itself, is pretty bold and dramatic.

I white embossed a sentiment from the Thinking of You Stamp Set onto a strip of a Jet Black Cardstock using the Pure White Embossing Powder and popped it up onto the panel.

To finish off the card, I added several white crystals. I really like this particular set of blue inks (Deep Blue Seas). It gives kind of shining result, perfect for night sky, sea or galaxy scenes.

Have a wonderful day!
